Haha, I was in a grumpy mood last night...long day at work. Let's try this again: I'm glad this is happening, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone! @iacas @Rob Thompson @saevel25 @Jeremie Boop @Hardspoon
Let's start making a list…
I'm in, if you guys don't mind me being terrible at golf. I might have the highest official handicap on the site...that should be a badge!
Just preference, I guess...whenever I work out or run, I wear Under Armor type shirts, so I'm used to them. Makes golf feel similar to other athletic activities, perhaps. They're not skin-tight or anything, just tighter/shorter than most golf shirts I've tried on (admittedly, I haven't tried many since I've only bought these for the past few years).
I'm curious - why isn't this a breach of Rule 1-2? 1-2. Exerting Influence On Movement Of Ball Or Altering Physical ConditionsA player must not (i) take an action with the intent to influence the movement of a ball in play or (ii) alter physical conditions with the intent of affecting the playing of a hole.Exceptions:1. An action expressly permitted or expressly prohibited by another Rule is subject to that other Rule, not Rule 1-2.2. An action taken for the sole purpose...
Per Rule 18-4, you are not penalized (you need to replace the ball where it was and continue).
I think that per Rule 1-2, he would be penalized 2 strokes (possibly disqualified, although it didn't really benefit him so probably not).
Huh - I missed that completely. If you look at the photos of the sole, it's pretty neat how they did it. I probably still would never go back to spikes (I've never had a problem with traction in my True's), but it's a cool design.
It's rare, but if there's a kidney-shaped green, you may not be able to putt at the flag since your ball would have to cross the fringe/rough. That seems rare enough to me that you want the software to assume it's a mistake - as long as you can correct it later.
